By this period of the war things were getting better organised.
There would not be such an amount of random or washed up corpses just
dumped, buried and forgotten.

I know they found 50 or more Marine Raiders a few years ago that had been murdered and randomly buried by the Japanese.
This is a different deal. There would have been a collection point and records made of it.
This is too a large a number to be a random incident, even considering the carnage at the time.
I think the word regarding families is "closure." I agree that few people who actually knew these guys are living.
My Mother, 85, speaks about those days and the homefront like it was yesterday.
Guess we'll see.

An aircrewman recovered recently from the "hump" was returned home.
It was a nice gesture, but all his family is gone.
